We believe in a multi-faceted approach to addressing the immediate needs of those stricken with poverty including hunger and medical care and the long-range problems that cause recurring, generational poverty such as lack of health services, education, and financial support. We leverage the resources and influence of many other agencies through mutual relationships for a cross pollination of skills and training. Our multi-faceted approach provides the best chance of survival and progression both physically and spiritually.
